North Carolina

If you have found us because you have experienced a loss, our hearts go out to you. We welcome you to reach out and join us as we honor babies gone too soon. If you would like to speak with someone or need financial assistance fill out our online application form and someone who can help will be in touch.

Who we serve

The need is great in the state of North Carolina. There are no government funds available to support bereaved families who need to make final arrangements for their baby and ongoing support to rebuild their lives. With your support, we can support these families and make a difference in North Carolina.

The North Carolina Chapter of The TEARS Foundation has assisted many families with funeral services, hosted memorial gatherings remembering babies, and holds its annual Rock & Walk gathering the community and bereaved families to walk and raise funds together in honor of their baby to help future families.

Help your Community

Anyone who is interested in supporting bereaved families in North Carolina is welcome and encouraged to attend one of these upcoming events, or apply to become a VolunTEAR with this form.
